I’ve never had a Polish Kolsch before, and this was somewhat different than the ones from Germany I’ve sampled, but it was damn good. Very balanced flavor, light but not too light, good looking in a glass. I dug it.

johndoughty (3979) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
Bottle. One of the strangest Kolschs I have ever tried and a pretty weird beer. Cloudy orange appearance with a lot more power than expected. Lots of fruitiness with a full on flavour. Although I have rated it a 4 it could have easily have been a 3 but it was so different that I struggled to come to grips with it. Weird and wonderful.

Pours a pretty deep copper-orange with a thinner head (probably the pour). Nose includes some impressive hop character: some spice, a little pine, some fruit, all subdued but notable. Taste is really pretty bitter with not much sweetness in there. Palate is pretty sizable, full mouthfeel with a lengthy bitter and toasted finish. A really nice beer with a lot more going on than you might expect. Cool.

Drake (8550) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Served on draft at the Tipsy Cow in Madison, WI at the GTMW pre-party. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet pale malts and grassy hops. The taste is toasted malts, nutty notes and grassy hops. Medium bodied. Nice kolsch.

arkurzynski (1519) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2012 Tipsy Cow Friday night pre-GTMW. Hazy golden color. Aroma of musty malt, some light hopping. Mild honey, pale malts, mild citrus, and light herbal-like hops. Somewhat rustic. A little thin, but refreshing. (3.2) Bottle re-rate (12/23/12): Brilliant golden amber pour with copious tan head. Murky. Aroma of water and malt with some fruit and herbal hopping. Flavor is lightly spicy malt with some dried citrus and moderate woody, herbal hops. Nice herbal bitter finish with lingering fruit and caramel. Overall, way better than the tap offering I remember. Overall, has a slight nuttiness that you would see with rice and a slight spiciness that you would see with rye. Don’t know if either is in the grist, but the complexity is there. Would definitely get again. (3.7)

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Rounded fresh grain and cheerio aroma. A bit malty, toasty, and slightly Munich-malt like. Chewy! This really bowls me over with incredibly well developed pils malt caramel sugars. Intense with caramel, freshly toasted creme brulee sugar, and a hint of banana. There’s a slight, distant smoky element that really elicts more of a quick flame or a burnt sugar than anything else. This makes me crave dessert. I love the toasted pils malt sugars. Maybe the polish hops are giving that hint of banana or mead-like fruity over tone, or maybe that’s the Kolsch yeast talking. Obviously straying from the style in a very interesting and enjoyable manner.

Bottle. Woody malt and alcohol aroma. Cloudy orange-brown with moderate head. Lightly sweet woody malt and alcohol flavor. Not your typical Koelsch.

hirigalzkar (2290) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours orange with a white head. Slightly hazy. Notes of dried fruit, cooked vegtables and grain in the aroma. Taste is very malty in a grainy farmhouse kind of way. Small hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied. Well balanced.
